The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward and recognise school’s engagement (provision and uptake) in the School Games against a national benchmark and to celebrate keeping young people active, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
Our physical activity and school sport achievements this year include:
1st place in the county final netball,
2nd place in the county for indoor athletics
5th place in the county for girls football.
We also won our local competitions in cross county, handball, netball and tennis.
Other sports pupils have taken part in are, Hockey, Cricket, Football, Multi sports, Sailing, Gymnastics, Dance and Dodgeball.
We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of physical activity and school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our events possible. We are committed to using the School Games to try and engage those young people who haven’t previously been active or represented our school and to try and ensure that all our students have a positive experience and want to try out new activities beyond school too in our community. We believe in the power of physical activity and school sport as a school and give opportunities to those young people that need it most either as a participant, leader, official or volunteer.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas linked to the five School Games outcomes and we are pleased thatthe hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
A special thanks to:
Mr White & Mrs Maidman
and all the pupils that took part in sports events and clubs throughout the year.
